Quartzsite Trip

CRLC members are planning a “do it yourself” trip to the annual rock show in Quartzsite Arizona in January 2017.  Members will drive or fly themselves and reserve their own hotel or free camp. We will arrange to meet up in Quartzsite and likely at the Sun City West Lapidary Club in Phoenix.

There are numerous rock shows in the Quartzsite area, but the one that has been recommended to us is the QIA PowWow Show with 520 booths, January 18-22, 2017.

Accommodation is free dry camping or hotels in nearby Blythe, California.

Quartzsite is located about equidistant between Palm Springs, Las Vegas & Phoenix, so you could fly into either of those places.  Or it’s about a 3 day drive down the I15 from Calgary.

Other area Activities and Rockhounding:

The Hauser Geode beds and Opal Hill commercial fire agates are nearby.

Tuscon also has numerous rock and gem shows in early February.  Quartszite tends to be cheaper, but Tucson has a huge number of small shows all at the same time.
